Great wrapper for bit.ly

Project description

PyBitly provides wrapper for bit.ly API. With bit.ly you can shorten, expand, share and track URLs. Web API is available at http://dev.bitly.com/. Usage:

This will obtain your API key from:
>>> import pybitly.api
>>> api = pybitly.api.Api('username','password')

To shorten some URL:
>>> api.shorten("http://www.wp.pl")
'http://bit.ly/VjQJi1'

You can also give a desired domain:
>>> api.shorten("http://www.wp.pl", "j.mp")
'http://j.mp/VjQJi1'

You can also shorten list of URLs:
>>> api.shorten(["http://wp.pl", "http://onet.pl"], "j.mp")
['http://j.mp/VjTksh', 'http://j.mp/19lCwGx']

If there is a problem, you will see:
>>> api.shorten("BAD LINK", "j.mp")
'INVALID_URI'

You can also expand one or more URLs:
>>> api.expand('http://bit.ly/198XQVq')
'http://docs.python.org/2/howto/urllib2.html'

>>> api.expand(['http://bit.ly/198XQVq', 'http://bit.ly/198XQVq', 'BAD URL'])
['http://docs.python.org/2/howto/urllib2.html', 'http://docs.python.org/2/howto/urllib2.html', 'NOT_FOUND']
